Orbit 21005 Bluetooth Hose Faucet Timer manual Image


Congratulations on the purchase of your B-hyve Bluetooth Hose Faucet Timer! Faucet watering has never been faster, easier or more convenient with the ability to control it from your phone. You can schedule, manually operate and monitor flow without climbing through your shrubs to access the timer. The timer works much like other Bluetooth devices: if you are within range of the timer you can connect to it with the push of a button via the home screen in the app. Your B-hyve Hose Faucet Timer uses a Bluetooth chip that has great range, up to 150 ft., to maximize the distance from which you can connect. It also allows you to water down to seconds, which is great for gardening, hydroponics, filling pet dishes or even bird baths

If Bluetooth doesn’t provide the flexibility you need, you can add the B-hyve Wi-Fi Hub to connect to your hose faucet timer from anywhere in the world. With the addition of a hub you can connect to the Internet and have your timer automatically update and adjust based on the weather forecast.

Whatever your connected outdoor watering needs, B-hyve provides best-in class smart products to help you more effectively manage and control your watering. Thanks for your purchase, and welcome to B-hyve.

Initial B-hyve Timer Setup

Batteries are not included and you will need two alkaline AA batteries to power your timer. Remove the battery tray and install the batteries according to the drawings located in the tray. Firmly reinstall the battery tray back into the timer.

Your timer is now in pairing mode and will flash a blue light every 5 seconds. You will also hear two clicks about 6 seconds apart, this is normal and ensures the valve is closed before you turn on the water.

 If at any time you need to re-pair, press the on/off button quickly 5 times.

Replace batteries when timer flashes a red light every 5 seconds, or when the app notifies you that batteries need replacing.

If you remove or change the batteries, you will need to reconnect to Bluetooth to set the correct time and date.

2) Install the Timer Connect the timer to an outdoor hose faucet. Your timer is now ready to be used with any product that can be attached to a standard hose faucet.

Do not place the timer in an underground valve box or anywhere
your Bluetooth signal will be obstructed.

3) Turn on Your Water
The water must remain on for the timer to work properly
